A mixture of feelings today - with the passing of Nelson Mandela - sorrow of course but glad he has been released from any suffering.
What a wonderful spirit. An amazing man who accomplished so much, for so many... who emanated, peace, love and forgivess... a shining example to us all. May he rest in peace.
As a reminder...
Several years ago I came up with a little deck of cards, which I called "Spirit Inspiration Cards" - just a small set of cards which I printed myself and put in a pretty organza bag.
The idea was to shuffle the cards, pick at least one - preferably three - and endeavour to carry out the task on the card within one week.
I designed these cards as a sort of teaching, healing and meditation deck, with very simple tasks, inspired by Spirit.
I've decided to draw 3 cards on Fridays and if you like, you can try to carry out at least one of the 'tasks' over the weekend.
The first card is:
Put on your favourite CD and dance like no one is watching!
Nothing lifts the spirits like dancing with joyous abandonment to your favourite music. It helps you to forget about your worries, it's good exercise, and makes you feel wonderful. It is FUN!
The second card is:
Don't you worry about a thing!
Seriously, Worry is pointless.
That thing that you are worrying about may not be as bad as you think - or may not even happen at all!
I know (believe me I do know) that it's hard not to worry about all the stuff going on in your life, however, it doesn't achieve anything other than focusing your energies on negative situations - thereby feeding those situations with loads of negative energy!
Worrying about something doesn't make it go away - it makes it worse and worse, as your mind starts to play out ever increasing 'worst case' scenarios and you get caught in a downward spiral of negativity and draw more of the same to you. (What we think we attract.)
Instead try to focus on something else. Something postive. Something good. Something to keep your mind occupied. Keep yourself busy so you have no room in your head for the negative thoughts causing you to worry.
The third card is:
Do someone a favour and then tell them to "Pay it Forward"
Pay it Forward is one of my favour ite films... If you've never seen it I can highly recommend it.
When someone does you a favour, when someone helps you out when you are in need, you are overcome with feelings - feelings of gratitide, joy, relief.
It makes you want to spread those feelings to others.
Helping others with no expectations of anything in return, but knowing they will then want to "Pay it Forward" is reward in itself. It makes you feel good - knowing you are spreading those feelings.
Spreading the joy. Spreading the Love :)
Please find your card and message below and whatever your star sign - have a wonderful weekend :)

These cards are beautiful and the messages are simple, innocent and child-like. They can be used to help teach your child how to use and work with guidance cards, but also it is nice to address our own 'inner child' at times... so that's what we're doing this week!
My personal card for today: (Second day in a row!)
Worth Waiting For
Your patience will be rewarded.
Full meaning: You know what you want and you’ve been waiting for it. This card means that your patience is about to pay off! You’ll soon have what your heart desires. It will most likely be better than you expect.
Everything happens at the perfect time, and this is why you needed to wait. You had lessons to learn, and other people had to be ready as well. Now, everything is set, and you’ll find that your prayers have been answered. All of your patience and hard work will now be rewarded.
For now, keep your mind focused on what you want, and don’t think about fear in any way. If you become afraid, then ask your angels for help. You need to keep the faith.
What you want is worth waiting for. Instead of settling for something that’s “good enough” you’ll now have the best. You deserve the best!
Today's cards for each of the star signs:
Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!
Here are your messages and insights for today. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...
Quick message: It’s time to clearly make a decision about what you want.
If you ever feel stuck, as if your life isn't moving along smoothly, then you need to make clear decisions about what you want. Decisions are magical, in that they get things moving again. If you don't like the direction in which your life is going, you can examine your decisions to see if they need changing. The best decisions will make you feel happy, and will make the people around you happy, too.
Wish upon a star
Quick message: Make a wish and expect the very best.
Make your wish and then believe it will come true. Ask for your heart’s desires - they’ll come to you in the perfect time, in the perfect way. You don’t need to know how your wishes will happen… all you need to do is make the wish. Then your inner voice may tell you to take action to make the wish come true. The inner voice always gives you positive words and feelings, and you must listen to it so that you can help yourself and others.
Quick message: The answer that you're seeking is love.
This card wants you to know the simple yet powerful answer that you seek: It is love - pure love, Divine love, healing love. You can heal your current situation by acting more lovingly toward others.
Finish what you started
Quick message: You've started something important, and now it's time to complete it.
It's actually easier to finish something than it is to deal with feelings related to the project being incomplete. The easiest way to finish is to spend daily time working on it a little bit. What can you do today to bring the project to completion? If you're unsure, ask your angels and unicorns for help. They can give you ideas, as well as the energy to work on finishing what you've started. You'll thank them and yourself after the task is done!
Quick message: You have the power to help and heal others.
Being a healer means that you’re open to Divine love coming through you - and also through people, animals, or situations that can benefit from this love. Ask your angels to help you with your healing work. They can answer your questions, help you with classes, and guide your healings.
You'll know in the morning (2 days in a row!)
Quick message: When you wake up, you'll have a better idea about what to do. Relax until then.
So for right now, don’t worry. Trust that your answer will be there for you when you wake up in the morning. It may not be the whole answer, but it will guide you in the right direction. Sleep well!
Quick message: Put your energy into the basics, and let go of excess.
This card says that things have gotten too complex for you lately. It's time to pull back and focus on what you know for sure. For example, what do you really want? What do you know that you don't want? These are basics that will help you answer bigger questions later.
One step at a time
Quick message: Lots of little steps make big dreams come true.
This card says that you have a big dream, but you may not know how to make it happen. The unicorns want you to know that your dream can come true if you’ll focus on taking one small step at a time. If you will just do one or two things a day related to your dream, it will come true more quickly than you can imagine!
Quick message: Run, walk, swim, or otherwise move your body. This will give you more energy and happiness.
Exercise helps you sleep better, which improves your outlook and moods. Plus, it’s the best way to deal with stress. After you’re done exercising, you’ll forget about any troubles, or you’ll have answers to help you deal with them. Exercise is more fun with a friend or family member. Or, you can take your dog (or a friend’s) on a long walk or run. Do something physical everyday… and you’ll thank yourself for it!
Relax - Everything's okay
Quick message: Don't worry... it's all going to be fine.
Your current situation will be over soon, and you’ll be fine. You’ll learn life lessons that will help you in the future. So use this current time to make yourself stronger. Breathe deeply, try your best to stay positive and happy, and remember to relax because everything’s going to be okay.
Try something new (2 days in a row!)
Quick message: You'll only know that you can do something if you try!
One reason why you may feel bored is that you’re doing the same things over and over. To feel excited about life, you need to try new things! This card asks you to think of something that you’ve always wanted to do, and then learn about it. Stretch yourself beyond what you think you can do. You may find that you really enjoy this new activity, and you’ll most likely make new friends too.
Quick message: To feel happier right now, think about a memory or something else that makes you smile.
Can you remember a time in your life when you felt really happy and safe? Think about that memory now, and feel it in your body. Even if some sad things are going on in your life right now, you have the power to be happy by thinking these positive thoughts. The happier you are, the more quickly things will get better in your life. Happiness is a magical energy that attracts pleasant experiences to you, so don’t delay in choosing to hold on to good thoughts.
